Marinating - What does it mean?
Posted by robert cruz on
The Webster definition of Marinating is;
soak (meat, fish, or other food) in a marinade. "the beef was marinated in red wine vinegar"
Marination, or marinading, is the process of creating a flavored liquid in which to soak foods prior to cooking them. The purpose of marinating is to tenderize tougher cuts of meat and/or impart both flavor and moisture to the food, that will last through the cooking process.
Most of you must be familiar with the culinary use of the term “marinate”, right? The way chicken or meat is marinated with Chaka's before cooking? So now, ask yourself what exactly happens there because that is the inspiration behind this. What happens is, the chicken (or meat) is left to sit in Chaka's for a long time. This way, it gets soaked up in the flavor and makes for a tastier dish when cooked.
What am I telling you all of this? It's so simple to grab a bottle of Chaka's and your favorite meat. Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Well, with these methods, it’s easier to pull off than you may think.
